Gen 2: Favorite - Breeding Pokemon, Held Items, Dark and Steel Types, Day/Night System Hated - Legendaries that Flee
Gen 3: Favorite - Pokemon Abilities were cool. Hated - Pokemon Beauty Contests. Lost Day/Night System.
Gen 4: Favorite - Physical/Special no longer tied to types, is move specific. Egg hatch to level 1. Hated - WAY too many event only Pokemon. Too many HMs needed constantly.
Gen 5: Favorite - Introduction of shaking grass. Seasons. Constant Pokemon animation. TMs have unlimited usage. Hated - Way too many online-only minigames, items, and Pokemon. Dream World. C-Gear sucks compared to old tools.
Gen 5.2: Favorite - The Habitat List. Xtransceiver calls to different people for advice. Critical Capture. Hated - The Black Tower/White Treehollow. Pokestar Studios. --- http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/7388/spectrumf.jpg

The only mechanics I hate is Dream World. Dream is good, but in Pokemon its just plain bad. --- The True Honedge Blacksmith of Pokemon XY Board

Gen 2: Liked - Hold items (though they were rather limited), two new types, fixed type chart, breeding Disliked - The legend chase (still hate it to this day), the phone (I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR GOD-DAMN RATATTA)
Gen 3: Liked - Natures and Abilities. (While I didn't know it at the time) the reworked EV system, Vs Seeker Disliked - the Regional Dex (without the Pokemon being available post-game)
Gen 4: Liked - THE GOD-DAMN PHYSICAL/SPECIAL SPLIT. Good lord, was that needed. Disliked - the sheer number of legends, many of which were event-only.
Gen 5: Liked - Hidden Abilities, and Starters could have them! Critical Captures (this was in B/W1 too) Disliked - Event-only, male Hidden Ability Starters, Dream World, removal of Vs. Seeker, how many of the Pokemon still don't have access to their Hidden Ability. --- 3DS FC: 2578-3118-6645 PSN: PowahBoxers I need to play Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door again...
